WHY HE DID NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL HE COULD LEAP THROUGH THE AIR.

My object m writing is two-fold ; to express my gratitude for a great benefit, and to tell a short story which cannot fail to interest the feelings of many others. It is all about myself, but I have remarked that when a man tells the honest truth about himself he Is all the more likely to be ol use to his fellow-creatures. To begin, then, you must know I had long been more or less subject to attacks of bronchitis, a complaint that you arc aware is very common and troublesome m Great Britain m certain seasons of the year. Some months ago I had a very severe turn of it, worse, I think, than I ever had before. It was probably brought on by catching cold, as we all are apto when we least expect it. Weeks passed by, and my trouble proved to be very obstinate, It would not yield to medicine, and as I also began to have violent racking pains m my limbs and back, I became greatly alarmed. I could neither eat nor sleep. If I had been a feeble, sicky. man, I shou'd have thought less strangely of it ; but as, on the contrary, I was hearty and robusts I feared some new and terrible thing had got hold of me, which might | make strength of no avail against it. I say, | hat was the way I thought. ' Presently I could not even lie down for the j pain all over my body. I asked my doctor j what be thought of my condition, and he j frankly said, •• I am sorry to have to tell you that you are getting worse I " This so I frightened my friends, as well as myself, that they said " Tliomas, you mutt go to the Hospital-, it may ie your oniy chance for ifcV But I didn't want to goto the hospital. Who does, when he tb inks he can possibly get along without it ? I am a laboring man, with a large family depending on me for support, and I might almost as well be m my grave as to be laid on my back m a hospital unable to lift a hand for months, or God only knows how long. Right at this point I had a thought flash across my mind like a stream of sunshine m a cloudy day. I had heard and read about Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, and I resolved, before consenting to be taken to the hospital, I would try that well-known remedy. On this I gave up the doctor's medicine and began taking the Syrup. Mark the wonderful result ! I had taken but three doses within twenty-four hours when I was seized with a fit of coughing, and ' threw up the phlegm and mucus ojf my chest 1 by the mouthful. The Syrup had ioosened , and broken it up. Continuing with the Syrup, • the racking pain, which I believe came from and joints, soon left *ne entirely, and I the bitter and poisonous humours m my blood ' felt like going to sleep, and I did sleep sound 1 and quiet. Then I felt hungry, wifh a natural 1 appetite, and as I ate I soon got strong and ' well. • 1 felt I could leap through the air with • delight In a week' I was able to go to my work again. It doesn't seem possible, yet it is true. - and the neighbours know it. And, therefore, f when I say I preach the good news of the - great power! of Seigel's Syrup to cure pian c and disease far and widef nobody will wonder s at me. s Thomas Canning: . 75, Military-road, Canterbury, i Kent.

Hollovtat's Ointmknt and Pills.— Old Wounds, Sores, and Ulcers.— Daily experience confirms the fact which has triumphed over opposition for more than forty years — viz , tat no means are known equal to Holloway's remedies for curing bad legs, sores, wounds, diseases of the skin, erysipelas, abscesses, burns, scalds, and, m truth, all cases where the skin is broken. To cure these infirmities quickly is of primary import* ance, as the compulsory confinement indoors weakens the general health. The ready means of cure are found m Holloway's Ointment and Pills, which heal the sores and expel their cause. In the very worst cases the Ointment has succeeded m effecting a perfect cure, after every other n.eans has failed of any relief. Desper.te cases best display its virtues
